Hello, I am a therapist who works with children, adolescents, adults, and families who are grappling with behavioral, emotional, and interpersonal wellbeing.  I recognize that making the decision to begin therapy can feel unnerving in terms of getting started, the commitment to treatment, and finding a good therapeutic fit.  

What I Do

Prior to becoming a therapist, I worked as a hotline counselor with the HIV/AIDS community, a social worker with the LGBTQ community, and a family social worker with the New York City Department of Education and New York City Department of Homeless Services.  In addition to working at Cobb Psychotherapy, I am currently a trauma therapist at a leading non-profit organization. These diverse experiences have provided me with a multidimensional lens that have enlightened my insight into the challenges that many people face.

How I Help

My approach to therapy is collaborative, direct, and psychodynamic which simply means that together, we will explore your process of continued development of growth and personal resilience, self-discovery, healing, and the achievement of your goals.  I aim to provide an interactive, reflective, and supportive environment.

More About Me

I received my graduate education at New York University’s Silver School of Social Work, and am a NYS licensed psychotherapist trained in trauma focused-cognitive behavioral therapy (TB-CBT).  I enjoy working with children, adolescents, adults, and families, being an intricate part of your therapeutic journey.

In my spare time, I enjoy reading autobiographies and novels; watching Bravo, British drama series, and sports; experiencing the arts such as the ballet, opera, theatre, and concerts; and I love to travel: Paris, Tel Aviv, and Cape Town are a few of my favorite cities.  I am also an avid runner and volunteer.
